I’m lucky that I live in North Leicestershire. In an earlier blog, I wrote about the beautiful scenery that can be found when walking the Ivanhoe Way.
The other day I went out for a bimble of ten miles or so around the Beacon (the highest point in Leicestershire), the Outwoods, Woodhouse Eaves and Nanpantan. The area I walked in is near the Leicestershire Round long-distance footpath and is quietly beautiful. It’s not spectacular like the Lake District or the Highlands which is why, I assume, not many backpackers can be found tramping the footpaths despite lots of opportunities for wild camping.
Anyhow I thought I’d share a few pictures of a quintessential English landscape which is now probably under threat thanks to our Government’s short-sighted changes to our planning laws. Enjoy the land while you can!
I thought the little heart plaque was touching and worth a mention too
